Perpetual Groove returned to the Brooklyn Bowl in Brooklyn, NY last Friday to deliver an eclectic set of covers as PGramps, along with a set of originals. This Athens, Ga based jam band specializes in a fusion of southern rock, funk, jazz improvisation, indie rock and synth loops. New York City's Q104.3 disc jockey Ken Dashow joined them on drums for a few songs during PGramps set.
Stalwart Athens, Georgia-based PERPETUAL GROOVE aka “PGroove” will release a 4-song EP entitled “C’mon. Covers?” on September 17, 2021, on all major digital platforms in conjunction with their fall tour of the East Coast that kicks off on September 23rd in Columbia, S.C., makes a two-night stop in Denver, and concludes on New Year’s Eve at the legendary Georgia Theatre in Athens, GA.
On May 17th Perpetual Groove will release their first new album since 2009, which is self-titled on Harmonized Records. In addition to a North American tour in support of the LP, the band is resurrecting its popular Talking in Place message board on their revamped website, PGroove.net. The first single, “Upswing,’ was released today along with an accompanying video, a new venture for the veteran outfit” – Relix.
The moody, brooding lyrics that comprise a number of their songs make Perpetual Groove the band they are: a rock ensemble catapulting beyond traditional musical confines yet dwelling in the spiritually contemplative side of Brock Butler and company.
On a day when college football’s number one ranked Georgia Bulldogs collapsed in laughable fashion on the road against Auburn-that other team from Alabama-fellow sons of Athens’, Perpetual Groove found themselves in a completely different scenario.
Ten months after Perpetual Groove’s post-hiatus return to Colorado, they penciled in another four-show fling along their current fall tour. With last year being their return to the stage, 2016 feels like the return to the norm, and then some. Wednesday and Thursday nights saw the band take the stage in Boulder and Fort Collins with two very different shows in terms of energy and song selection, which is no surprise considering the close proximity of each show.
This past February, Perpetual Groove announced that they would be back from a two year hiatus, and in the summer they got back on the road again to the delight of fans around the country. As part of the giving of gratitude Thanksgiving this year, the band came to Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom in Denver, CO for a pair of nights of jamming.
Perpetual Groove is back. Playing in Denver for the first time since February of 2012, they settled into their two-night run at Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom on Friday with a show that stretched into the wee hours of Saturday morning. The four piece trance rock outfit is riding high with their return to the stage after a two year hiatus; rejuvenated after a collision course of self-discovery and introspective exploration.
